If you'd rather not shell out your holiday shopping dollars at the big-box stores this year, why not skip Black Friday and try hunting for great deals on Green Friday instead?
On Nov. 29, nonprofit retail locations throughout New York City will participate in ReuseNYC Green Friday — a community-oriented answer to Black Friday that focuses on supporting those in need and preventing waste through secondhand shopping.
More than 40 retail locations will take part in the event by offering a variety of sales in locations across the five boroughs.
Participating retailers include common names like Goodwill and The Salvation Army, and some you may have never heard of, such as the Arthritis Foundation Gift Shop, Cancer Care Thrift Shop, Lower East Side Ecology Center and more.
Deals range from 10 percent off to 50 percent off storewide — meaning you'll not only score rock-bottom deals but also rest easy knowing your dollars supported causes you care about.
